I had to stop reading your blog when in the first sentence you had to take a swipe at Trump. We only get one president at a time!

My negative views of trump started DECADES before he elected. But then again; that is what the short version is for!

Brake life isn't what F1 teams care most about - brake temperature is. If they can offload some of the deceleration energy into the motor and batteries via regen, they can use smaller and lighter brakes.

At best.

Nixon had the balls to resign when required. Someone seems to be lacking something....

Capt. Crozier chose between his career and his crew. He chose his crew. Teddy Roosevelt is smiling.

Crozier for President.

The article is all but useless to me. ZERO info on the test is a non starter for me. It is impossible for me to know how my driving style would conform to what they did. FYI; I know a few people with the T3 S Plus and in some circumstances they can likely out do my S Plus...

You have to click through to What car. Twice.

There’s a detailed description of their test process. They do a solid job of controlling for variables.

Interesting test. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for that. The testing results make sense along with my personal experience on range.

I laud the testers but even the lengths they went thru to "level the playing field" is not really treating each car fairly. It does provide a comparison between models for a very specific type of driving condition but again, no real data on how the course was driven other than it mirrored typical stop and go driving, etc.

But using the lowest regen, standard tire pressures, etc. is now putting all the cars into a single standard and negating the strengths each car has.

The purpose of a test like this is to create a comparable metric across cars under repeatable conditions, not to find what any given owner’s experience would be.

It’s a fair test that achieves its intent.

Playing Captain Obvious here, but I don’t understand your objection.
